Fishermen See Bear Cub Latch on to Boat, Then They Realize He’s Not the Only One

By Carolyn Marie
Mothers are known for seeing their children in the best possible light. We all know of a mother who has overestimated their child’s abilities.
This overestimation often reveals itself in relation to school and sports. Teachers and coaches could likely share plenty of stories of this occurring.
Apparently, animals are not immune to thinking their children are really more skilled than they are. A mother bear in Russia overestimated her baby cubs’ swimming abilities.

This time, it was fishermen, rather than teachers and coaches, who had quite the story to tell. Amazing footage of the interaction between the fishermen and cubs was captured.

Lake Vygozero - Bom island lighthouse-Russian inland waterways.

The mother bear was trying to cross Lake Vygozero with her cubs. She thought that they would be able to make it across, but the cubs were struggling.
Eventually, the mother and cubs became separated as they were sinking more than swimming. The cubs were seconds away from drowning when they saw a boat.
One of the cubs shown in the video clung to the boat, which belonged to fishermen. They were Russian tourists who began filming when one of the cubs showed such desperation to stay alive.

The fishermen’s discussion in the video was translated. According to DailyMail, one man said, “Take a rest, little one, take a rest…But what if [he] bites us?”
The other man replied, “No, he won’t, he’s just clinging on for his life.” They knew that even if there was a risk to their own lives, there was no way they would watch the cub drown.

They used a net to help ease the cub onto the boat. One of the fishermen said reassuringly, “We’ll rescue you, don’t be afraid.”

The cub was heavier than they expected. Still, they were able to rescue the cub despite their fears and his weight.
The other cub was lifted into the netting on the boat and carried. The fisherman took the cubs to the island where their mother was waiting.
I’m sure the mother bear was grateful to see her cubs. The fishermen thought they were looking for fish that day, but instead saved two sinking bear cubs!

After Nevada hosts a gun show, California sees sharp rise in gun-related injuries and deaths

oped: This is a outright lie...Ms Kaplan would do herself a favor by researching Nevada's Gun Laws...hey Missy go to a Nevada Gun Show and try to buy a gun without a background ain't gonna happen! 
I also shrug at your so called research about California Gun Shows vs Nevada's Gun shows...what a crock of proverbial BS!  



The findings, published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine, show that state gun laws have a measurable effect on public safety, especially when it comes to gun shows, the study authors wrote.
More than 4,000 gun shows are held in the United States each year, and experts estimate that they’re responsible for 4% to 9% of the nation’s firearms sales. When these sales are made by federally licensed gun dealers, would-be buyers are subject to a background check. But in some states, unlicensed sellers at gun shows don’t have to follow the same rules.

California, which has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, requires background checks even at gun shows. Nevada does not.
Ellicott Matthay, a public health researcher at UC Berkeley, and her colleagues recognized this as an ideal scenario for testing the effects of state laws regarding gun show sales.
The researchers scoured gun show listings in a magazine called the Big Show Journal. Altogether, they tallied 275 such shows in Nevada and 640 shows in California between Jan. 1, 2005, and Dec. 31, 2013. Then they identified regions in California that were within a one-hour drive of a California gun show or a two-hour drive of a Nevada gun show.
(For the record, most Californians could have driven to a gun show in 60 minutes or less at least once every few weeks.)

Next, the researchers used state health data to compare the number of gun injuries — both fatal and non-fatal — for each of the study regions in the two weeks before and two weeks after the nearby show. When the show was in California, the “after” period began 10 days after the show’s opening day, because buyers were subject to the state’s 10-day waiting period.
Altogether, 15,000 Californians were injured or killed by firearms in the two weeks before California gun shows, as were 14,893 in the two weeks after those gun shows. In the before-and-after comparison, the rate of firearm injuries and deaths remained essentially flat, at about 1.3 per 100,000 people, the researchers found.
The firearms toll was much lower in regions near Nevada gun shows. Only 44 Californians were injured or killed in the two weeks leading up to those shows, but that figure jumped to 74 in the two weeks afterward. The rate of gun injuries and deaths rose from 0.67 to 1.14 per 100,000 people. After the researchers made some statistical adjustments, that represented a 69% increase in gun-related morbidity and mortality, the study said.

The researchers also found that firearm-related casualties suffered by Californians increased much more — 70% more — when gun shows were held in Nevada than when they were in California.
Most of that increase could be traced to cases in which the shooter meant to harm another person (as opposed to accidents or instances of self-harm). Injuries and deaths from these intentional shootings rose 2.2 times more after Nevada gun shows than they did after California gun shows.
The results offer a compelling case for laws regulating gun sales, according to an editorial that accompanied the study.
“Laws regulating access to guns matter and do make a difference,” wrote Drs. Ali Rowhani-Rahbar and Frederick Rivara, both pediatricians and epidemiologists at the University of Washington in Seattle.
But state laws can only go so far, they added. Without federal legislation, tough regulations in California “can be easily breached by a car trip” to Nevada. “It does not reduce the importance of the laws but does reduce their impact.”

Julian Assange Just Unleashed a Hellish Surprise On Hillary Clinton… This Is HUGE 

Paris Swade

Julian Assange just attacked Hillary Clinton this Sunday. Julian Assange tweeted out something mysterious about Hillary Clinton that has people guessing that something is coming for Hillary Clinton.
Here is what Assange tweeted out.
“4767 5774 6a7a 4d6c 6330 666b 314a 3453 0000 0907 84b4 f787 7616 86f7 a737 5707 5736,” tweeted Assange.
Julian Assange just tweeted out Hillary’s worst nightmare.
Julian Assange then pointed out the campaign to claim that Wikileaks is a Russian-owned institution. He pointed out that even Barack Obama and several Obama officials said that Wikileaks and Russia were not tied.
Then he just dropped a bombshell on Hillary Clinton.
Share this if you agree with Julian that Hillary Clinton is creepy!
Whew. That’s a Sunday night burn if anyone’s ever seen one.

Brilliant — Trump Claims He Feuds With Republicans as a Strategy to Force Them to Work

During Ronald Reagan’s 1966 California gubernatorial run, he frequently used what became known as his “Eleventh Commandment.” Quoth The Gipper: “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.”
For his part, President Trump has chosen to stick with the original Decalogue handed down to Moses back at Mount Sinai. In fact, the commander-in-chief has worked with some diligence to chisel Reagan’s favorite commandment off of the stone tablets. Among the very long list of Republicans who have felt Trump’s wrath since he took office include Bob Corker, Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and Mitch McConnell. Even members of his own administration aren’t immune, as Jeff Sessions discovered.

In fact, given that The Washington Post noted in August that Trump feuds with GOP figures on Twitter more than he does Democrats, one could almost accuse the president of being a detriment to the party. However, according to Trump, there’s a method to the madness — its his way of getting a stuck Congress to work toward implementing the conservative agenda.

The president made the remarks during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” Interviewer Maria Bartiromo noted that “even your supporters say you know, ‘he has fantastic policies, we want to see this through, but the bickering and the feuding actually gets in the way.’
“So obviously the feuding with Senator Corker, I think there’s a personal thing going on between you and Senator McCain, do you worry that this bickering and feuding gets in the way of your agenda?” she asked.
“No, and sometimes it helps, to be honest with you,” the president said.

“We will see what happens in the end. I think actually sometimes it helps. Sometimes it gets people to do what they are supposed to be doing and you know that’s the way it is. I just want what’s right. And I think, for the most part, they want what’s right too. So we will see what happens. But I do believe we have the votes for health care at the appropriate time. And I think that we’re going to have the votes for taxes.”
Watch below: (Relevant portion begins at 4:12.)

Now, whether or not this policy — an unusual one, to say the least — will work is anyone’s guess. Early returns have been mixed. Health care clearly didn’t go the way any Republican wanted it to, but part of that was because of the sheer unpreparedness of the GOP congressional caucus — something that the president seems to believe he can change through confrontation. Tax reform is in the nascent stages, but the effort seems more organized and focused than repealing Obamacare did. That is, I will grant you, a low bar, but it’s something.

Nevertheless, attacking Republicans going into one of the most crucial midterms in modern history isn’t just terra nova, it’s one of the riskier strategies we’ve ever seen from a president to get their agenda through.
If it works, you can plan on hearing another round of stunned silence from the media and 4D-chess references from the president’s supporters. After all, after years of controlling Congress, Trump would be the guy who would get the credit for spurring them on to do their job.
If it all ends in tears, however, Trump’s gamble against the “Eleventh Commandment” may be the one dispute with the GOP that the president can’t smooth over or recover from.

Trump Green-lights CIA Kill Teams to Hunt High-Level Taliban Leaders

The CIA is ramping up its counter-terrorism efforts, announcing its decision to send more military forces to Afghanistan in an effort to obliterate Taliban leaders.
According to The New York Times,  this is a massive decision for the CIA. During previous administrations, the federal agency was hesitant to supply additional troops to fight the Taliban, instead focusing on the threat from Al-Qaeda.
However, thanks to President Donald Trump’s leadership, the CIA is focusing on a more “aggressive” approach to fighting these terrorist enemies of the United States overseas.

“We can’t perform our mission if we’re not aggressive,” CIA Director Mike Pompeo said. “This is unforgiving, relentless. You pick the word. Every minute, we have to be focused on crushing our enemies.”
The Daily Caller reported that Trump spearheaded the effort to put more troops in Afghanistan.
In fact, it was after an August 21 address by the president that Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced that 3,000 additional troops would be sent to Afghanistan.

“The killers need to know they have nowhere to hide, that no place is beyond the reach of American might and American arms,” Trump said. “Retribution will be fast and powerful.”
Mattis also announced that the U.S. will drop a record number of bombs on the territory.
According to Fox News, the efforts will be led by small groups who call themselves “counter-terrorism pursuit teams.”
If it weren’t for President Donald Trump, none of this would be happening. He is ramping up the fight against terrorism in the fulfillment of his campaign promise. Thank you, Mr. President, for keeping our country safe.

Mueller’s Russia Probe Now Targeting Democrat-Leaning Podesta Group
By Andrew Kerr
Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group, his Democrat-leaning lobbying firm, have become subjects of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged connections between the Trump campaign and Russia, three sources with knowledge of the matter told NBC News.
The sources said Podesta and his lobbying firm came under scrutiny during Mueller’s inquiry into the finances of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Tony Podesta is the brother of John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. John Podesta is not included in Mueller’s probe and is not currently affiliated with the Podesta Group.

Podesta’s firm was one of the many that worked on Manafort’s public relations campaign called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which sought to promote Ukraine’s image in the West from 2012 to 2014.
According to The Daily Beast, the ECMU was backed by Ukraine’s pro-Russia Party of Regions, which, at the time of the campaign, was led by Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Yanukovych fled the country in 2014 after being oused by the Ukranian parliament, NBC reported at the time.

What began as a fact-finding mission about Manafort’s connection with the ECMU became a criminal inquiry into whether Podesta’s firm violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
FARA requires that agents who lobby on behalf of foreign governments disclose their spending and activities with the Justice Department. Failure to file disclosures with the Justice Department is a felony punishable up to five years in prison.
However, prosecutions for violating FARA are rare.

It was only after the media reported the Podesta Group’s involvement with the ECMU that the organization filed its FARA registration.
Manafort’s firm also filed a FARA registration for its work in Ukraine from 2012 through 2014, but only after The Associated Press disclosed its foreign activities in June 2016.
In a statement to NBC News, a spokesman for the Podesta Group said the firm “is cooperating fully with the Special Counsel’s office and has taken every possible step to provide documentation that confirms timely compliance. In all of our client engagements, the Podesta Group conducts due diligence and consults with appropriate legal experts to ensure compliance with disclosure regulations at all times — and we did so in this case.”
NBC News reported in August that Mueller’s team sent subpoenas to six firms involved with Manafort’s ECMU public relations lobbying campaign.

The development came after Manafort’s apartment in Alexandria, Virginia, was raided by FBI agents in July. He remains a central figure in Mueller’s ongoing investigation.
